Welcome to COLLECTIVE PERSPECTIVE A segment where at least two of our bloggers collaborate to share their thoughts in a joint review discussion.     Today, Bry and Fry discuss the latest novella of Mira Grant’s Newsflesh series, The Day the Dead Came to Show and Tell F: I’m going to have to preface this with: I have two grade school children, a first grader and a third grader.

Although I am a huge fan of supernatural lore and paranormal creatures, I have never been inclined towards zombies. However, after reading The Girl With All the Gifts by M.R.

Trusting her judgement, I dove in, and swiftly found myself devouring Feed with the zealous gusto of the freshly-undead. Not only did this book cement my interest in… Read more »
